Hi All... I am going out of my mind trying to solve my Mobilepre audio problem!!! My problem is that whenever I record through Cubase SX3, Ableton whatever....I can hear clicks and within a few seconds a horrible squelching noise takes over, I have to close out the program to get rid of it....this also happens if I listen to or watch something in Windows Media Player...although then it's usually just a couple of quick squelches once in awhile. I know it's not the Mobilepre because it works fine in an older Dell that I have. ( Can't use the Dell because it's just to slow) I have an AMD Athlon 64 3800+ processor @ 2.4 GHz and 2 gig of ram on WinXP SP2. ASUS A8V-MX VIA K8M800 Chipset motherboard with Realtek AC97 onboard soundcard. I've tried every XP optimizing tip I could find to no avail. I have 2 hard drives...I put XP and Cubase on the 1st. drive( I've also tried with just XP on the 1st. drive and everything else on the 2nd. drive) and use the second for other music apps and music data. Tried disabling the Realtek and that seems ro make it worse!? I tried a clean install of XP with SP3 and that didn't help...so I formated and did another clean install of XP SP2 but this time I thought I wouldn't install the onboard soundcard Realtek drivers because I was sure they were conflicting somehow....that didn't work so for the hell of it I then installed the Realtek drivers...and lo and behold everything worked like a charm...for about a week....I tried the other day and I'm back to the squelching!!! I didn't install anything or make any changes because I was scared I'd screw things up now that I finally had it working.... I've tried all Mobilepre drivers and again, anything I can find on the net but nothing works!!!! Please....any help.....this has been going on for a couple of years!!!!! Somebody somewhere must have a similar problem!!!! Thanks in advance!!
